Vancouver Junior/Adult Grand Prix 2003-2004

This year's junior Grand Prix has an added twist - adults can now play! There will be three sections in each event, organized as follows:

OPEN SECTION - OPEN to any player, adult or junior, of any rating; three-round Swiss, time control of 60 minutes per player, CFC active rated

N.B. CFC membership is required to play in the open section

U1500 SECTION - juniors only; three- or four-round Swiss, time control of 60 minutes or 45 minutes per player, CFC regular rated

BOOSTER SECTION - juniors only; five-round Swiss, time control of 30 minutes per player, CFC regular rated


There will be cash prizes in the top two sections. The winner of the Open will receive $30, with other place and class prizes based on turnout; a similar prize structure will apply to the U1500 section. The top finishers in the Booster section will receive trophies, books, or cash.

Grand Prix Prizes:

The Grand Prix applies to the Open and U1500 sections. At the end of the year, each player takes the total of his or her six best results. A player who plays in more than six Grand Prix events is able to discard his or her worst result(s), and therefore it is advantageous to participate in all eight events.

Open Section 1st - $200 2nd - $150 3rd - $100 U1900 - $100/$50 U1700 - $100/$50

U1500 Section 1st - $150 2nd - $120 3rd - $90 U1300 $90/$50
